This online Oregon Writing Project (OWP) course will provide a place for white educators to build anti-racist curricular units that question inequality and injustice while nurturing students’ activist sensibilities about how to make a difference in the world. During our week-long work, educators will create lessons to help students understand not only this historical moment, but how we got here.
OWP coaches will lead educators to create lessons and units that show the power already present in communities of color instead of a curriculum that depicts communities of color as victims. The curriculum will focus on the contributions of the community, locating and upholding community activists and mentors. We will begin with morning demonstration lessons and discussions about anti-racist teaching, disrupting white supremacy, while building content area and literacy skills.
Cost: $500, includes 30 PDUs
